Brilliant High Definition, versatile smooth zoom
The full HD 2.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor and silent HD 20x zoom video lens with optical image stabilisation produces a brilliant combination of smooth high definition and the versatility to really explore your creative options.

The full HD CMOS sensor gives true HD quality without any pixel interpolation for excellent colour reproduction, has low power consumption, is sensitive to low light and provides brilliant colour balance for the ultimate in image quality. It also means your movies will look great on your HD TV.

The 20x optical zoom HD video lens lets you get up close and personal, even with far away subjects, for example at sporting events or concerts. And with Canon's enhanced Dynamic Optical Image Stabiliser your movies will always have a smooth professional look. Switch easily from Standard Mode to Dynamic Range when you want to stabilise heavy hand shake on the move, for example when shooting from a moving car or when walking or climbing up and down stairs, or when shooting at maximum telephoto range.

Dual flash memory to shoot and share
The LEGRIA HF R16 offers all the convenience of Dual Flash memory. It combines an internal memory of 8GB, which can record and save up to 3 hours of HD movies with a removable SDHC memory card slot for extended recording time.

For instance using an additional 16GB SD card will triple the available memory to around 9 hours of recording time. Or you can use higher capacity cards to further increase video storage. Meanwhile Relay Recording means there is no need to stop filming when one memory gets full as the camcorder automatically switches to the next available free storage. You can also copy movies from the internal flash drive onto the removable memory card, so they are ready and waiting for immediate viewing by friends and family.

With Eye-Fi Video cards you can upload direct to the web without the need for a PC.

Sharing has never been easier
The LEGRIA HF R16 has an inbuilt HD-SD converter, which allows you to easily downgrade your HD movies for uploading to internet sites like YouTube. All you have to do is select HD-SD conversion when you copy your movie from one memory source to another. Easy Web Upload software (already included free in the box), then displays your SD clips and can store your YouTube log in details, so you can select your clip and upload with one click.

Unique to Canon camcorders the LEGRIA HF R16 also incorporates dedicated support functions for Eye-Fi video cards. Eye-Fi are the first memory cards with their own Wi-Fi transmitter that allows you to effortlessly transfer videos directly from the camcorder direct to online sharing sites via the Eye-Fi server without the need for a PC. You can also send movies wirelessly to your own PC and customize not just where your movies are sent but also how you want them organised.

Intelligent by design for the perfect image
Canon's Smart Auto technology, which was pioneered in their digital still cameras, allows the LEGRIA HF R16 to intelligently select the appropriate settings so you can concentrate on your subject and still be sure of great looking movies. Advanced Scene Detection Technology automatically analyses shooting conditions - detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information - then selects the perfect settings from 31 specially defined scenes. So whether you're filming fireworks, a captivating sunset, your child on stage and in the spotlight or friends playing football in the park with Smart Auto mode you can be confident you're getting the perfect HD image.

High speed, precision focusing
Unique to Canon HD camcorders, Instant AF (auto focus) uses two auto focus sensors to help you find the perfect focus with speed and accuracy. This is great for HD movies where errors in focusing can be more noticeable. The first sensor quickly estimates the distance to the subject, while the second makes fine adjustments for absolute precision. It's effective even when shooting at night or with slow shutter speeds, plus it works so quickly - refocusing takes place in about 0.5 seconds - you may not even notice it's there.

Video Snapshot makes it easy to create video montages without a PC.

Multi-shot movies with music made easy
Video Snapshot mode makes it fun and easy to create great video montages, without the need for a PC. All you have to do is press the record button to capture 2, 4 or 8-second standard definition clips from your HD originals, either during filming or playback, then select a series of clips and create a 'playlist' in one file for an easy multi-shot movie. This can then be set to music, chosen from the pre-loaded rights-free tracks on the camcorder or the selection supplied on the accompanying CD. Alternatively you can upload your own WAV format tracks using the Music Transfer Utility supplied.

Never miss a shot
In Pre REC mode, the camcorder starts recording three seconds before you even press the Record button. Three seconds of footage are continuously stored and automatically added to the beginning of your clip from whenever you start videoing - so you need never miss that crucial moment again. With Quick Start standby mode you can also power up the camcorder in less than a second by simply flipping open the LCD screen.

A world of Advantages with Canon Technology

60 years of lens excellence
Every Canon camcorder lens is constructed to the most exacting standards and backed by 60 years experience in crafting lenses for broadcast. Up to 13 individual lenses can be included in a single Canon camcorder lens, each featuring aspheric lens elements to remove any image distortion for the highest quality movies. Canon make their own lenses and their outstanding image quality is underscored by their use in most broadcast applications. For example programs like Coronation Street, Casualty and X Factor and nature documentaries like The Blue Planet and Life, as well as the majority of outside broadcasts in the UK, are all recorded using Canon's state-of-the-art broadcast lenses.

Face Detection technology locates faces and automatically optimises shooting settings.

Processing power with Face Detection
The DIGIC DV III processor lies at the heart of Canon's superior imaging quality. Developed to handle the increased data rate and requirements of HD, the processor employs a unique noise reduction system for clear sharp images with excellent colour reproduction and tonal range. It can also capture great detail in highlight and shadow areas, ensures bright and accurate flash shooting and basically lets you leave difficult shooting conditions up to the camera for error-free footage every time.

The DIGIC DV III processor also powers Canon's Face Detection Technology, which can simultaneously detect the faces of up to 35 individuals in a single frame, automatically optimizing shooting settings for each. Up to nine faces are highlighted automatically so you can select the star of your movie and be sure they will remain perfectly focused at all times. Even when faces are framed against very dark or very light backgrounds they remain correctly exposed and focused. Face Detection can also be used in playback to find a recorded scene featuring a specific person. Face Jump and Face Timeline allow you to see captured faces as thumbnails on the 2.7" widescreen multi-angle vivid LCD screen.

Split path processing also allows the option of high quality photo capture, separate to video, optimising them for contrast, detail and viewing as printed photos.

You don't need to stop recording to capture stills as you can set all key controls to automatic Dual Shot mode, which allows you to capture great action sequences and still shots at the same time. With Photo Burst you can also capture stills from a sequence of recorded video. With a press of the Photo button 25 individual shots are created from a single second of video - a fun way to capture the best scenes as photographs.

A fresh, new approach to camcording
Derived from the Portuguese word meaning 'joy', LEGRIA camcorders offer supreme ease of use, fun features and outstanding quality. Based on over 70 years of Canon's imaging know-how they let you capture the world as you see it, giving you stunning details in the palm of your hand. Canon's no-compromise approach to quality, elegance and simplicity is evident in all aspects of the design so you can create exciting, original videos that you are truly proud of.

    Just returned from a fabulous trip to Iceland. Hadn't had the Legria HF R16 for very long before going , so didn't have a lot of time to practice with it. That said, I found it very easy just to use on Auto and pretty well point and shoot. Zoom is excellent, although a tripod would be better when using at full zoom to minimise shake (it can be very windy in Iceland). I used the hard drive to do a day's recording and then downloaded each day's footage to a Grade 6 SDHC card in case the hard drive got full which actually didn't happen, so I ended up with all my footage on the hard drive, backed up on the SDHC card (good for using with PC). To produce my own movie of the holiday I wanted to convert from HD to SD but if you use the camera facility to do this (very easy to do), the files are converted to the dreaded .MOD extension which I had already experienced with my JVC Everio. However I have found two very good software packages to produce .AVI files from either HD or SD footage, which I can then use with any video-making programmes such as Windows Movie Maker. Overall a neat, small and lightweight camcorder, producing very good results. Also has a very adequate built-in microphone. Have given 5 stars, even with the .MOD files problem, because most good camcorders use this format anyway. Surely it's time for the popular home video software packages to include .MOD file compatability.

    As a first time video camera owner, I find that this camera is easy to use, compact, light-weight and very portable. I always liked the idea of recording straight to memory card instead of dvd or a hard drive. I recommend the highest definition record setting, but this does seem to drain the battery quite quickly. With a bit of play back through the TV, and shooting video clips, a single charge may last about 45mins. Carrying a spare battery (and charger) around for longer clips or journeys, is a must. I will really enjoy this new purchase. ;o)

    I chose the Canon Legria HF 16 after reading good reviews on picture Quality and I was not disappointed the colour and sharpness were brilliant. I liked the on/off button being located central to the back of the case rather than the more common top corner adjacent to the strap. This allows 'men sized hands' to easily hold the camera and apply the button with minimum shake, and to locate when in a hurry to use.
    The camera looks and feels good and the menu tool bars easy to follow and format.
    The disappointment arose with the noisy operation. There was a constant whirring noise when in basic mode and then when panning a further noise developed which sounded like a car diesel engine running. When this was played back through the TV the operational sounds over-laid the commentary. I sent the camera back and Amazon sent me a replacement this unfortunately was the same. Amazon service was brilliant and without fault. P.S. I also ordered a spare battery and this never arrived so all in all I am pretty fed up.

    Why oh why to companies do this......why not simply let the product record information in a readily readable format instead of a format which can easily be played onto the tv, but then needs to be converted if it is going to be viewed on your pc or sent to the grand parents who are incapable of understanding that not all video files are the same.

    The camera itself is great and does everything we asked of it. We got it so that we could record the joyous moments of our young daughter. So far she just stares at the camera and does nothing, but hey, you can bring a horse to water and not make it drink!

    FOr the price its definitely worth buying!

    Awesome camera. For outside filming and indoor filming with good light, it can't be beaten for the price. Auto Focus is immense and the number of settings make it very nimble and versatile.
